Hey

Just got this game and opened it.

I was reading through the setup and noticed the picture for the initial setup has 3 red tiles. But my copy only has 2.

The missing one is called backer quarter.

Am I missing this or does the rulebook have an error?

Thanks

Backer Quarter may be exclusive to the KS version, not sure though...

Ah might be. I got a retail fancy tray version. But the Kickstarter page doesn't list anything as exclusive.

EDIT:
Found the number of tiles in the rulebook.
9 for initial tiles
and the backer quarters is in the early stage tile set.

The only difference between the two versions available is the presence of the vacuum-formed tray. No other components are different! And since there has only been one printing (for the KS), technically everything is KS exclusive If you got it from a store, they got it from the KS

Yes, there are 9 Initial tiles. In the example image, the Backer Quarters is placed from the Early stack in order to fill in all spaces until there is only one empty space. This only happens in 1p or 2p games, because there are only 3 moving pawns + one gap, and 14 total spaces, so that leaves 10 spaces to fill with tiles.

And remember, the setup example is just an example: the Initial tiles should be placed in a random order.

I hope that all makes sense! Enjoy!
